You Are

 Friends, I just realized something.

If you write this:

               Your going to have a good day.

Then you might as well write this:

               I hope youl have a good day.

Sorry to carry on like this, but I have to do my little part to make people think!  If you’re going to say that you’re going to do something, then you’re going to need to put an apostrophe in the word, and you’re going to have to put an e on the end.  You’re, you’re, you’re!  It means YOU ARE.  Please.  Keep this in YOUR mind!

    Hahaha…you must all be teachers at heart….I lived w/ one for 20 years & he was constantly correcting me, and one of those was to never us “at” at the end of a sentence. And the correct use of the ‘ was his absolute pet peeve!

    I am howling at these comments!!!

  12. Jill says:

    TJ’s last honors English paper was about this subject. He completed the assignment which was to use commonly misused words, his teacher marked his grade down because he had written about a flood in the desert. Crazy!

  13. Kim says:

    I find errors all of the time on papers given out by teachers…always tempted to correct them and send back!!! Ha ha ha!

  14. Glenda Powell says:

    COMPLETE agreement! Sloppy spelling and grammar is one of my biggest irritants.

    I know this thread was left in the dust a month ago, but I just found it and had to say that I too, am a stickler for proper English. On the news, the reporters sometimes throw in “it’s like de ja vu all over again”! Oh my they are supposed to be professionals.

    Glad you chimed in, Jean. It’s never to late to jump on my little ranting bandwagon!
